Chevrolet Corvette (1982)


Chevrolet Corvette (1982)

By 1982 the Corvette was at the end of its third-generation guise which had started back in the late 1960s. Despite tweaks over time and a mild facelift with moulded fenders in 1980, a redesign was well overdue, but Chevrolet engineers wanted this 'Vette to go out with a bang so they produced the 'Collector Edition'. It came with silver paint and clot, silver leather door trim, a lift-up rear window, bronze T-tops, plus tasteful finned aluminium wheels measuring 8x15 inches (203x381mm) and fitted with 255/60 Goodyear Eagle tyres. The only engine available was at least very good, featuring Cross Fire fuel injection and computer-controlled engine management for great power, plus over 20mpg (7.08km/I)) at steady highway speeds. The Corvette handled like a true sportscar thanks to full independent suspension, but inside was the most civilized ride yet in the model.
